Re: MUP 113 - A Group's 1-Minute Horror with Mayor McPain

Hey guys! So I finally got round to listening here (I'm catching up... such a backlog!) and the section on investigator groups interested me. I have a few oddball ideas that might give someone some inspiration. This was touched on a bit after I wrote it down, but films and suchlike. Specifically, wh...

Re: Share your favorite other podcasts

Just in the general gaming line, I can recommend The Adventuring Party . They cover a broad range of Irish gaming, so there's lots of con discussions that may not be widely relevant (I skip most, but sometimes I just have them on for background), reviews of card games, CCGs and so on. However, they ...

Re: AoC 9 - The Lost Expedition -- Kickstarter is now LIVE!

Looking forward to it! I took the chance to grab the previous few as well. We generally run more investigative games so I'm interested to see how my players handle the pulpier side.

Re: Looking for playtest Keepers

I don't have any particular deadline. Apart from anything else, I'm not sure who other than Chaosium would publish a 60-page Gaslight scenario and they're not taking submissions at the moment. The other publishers' focus seems to be either on their own game lines, or on darker and mostly in-house ma...

Looking for playtest Keepers

I finally managed to playtest a Gaslight scenario I've been working on for months, and it went down really well with my group. But it's one thing for me to run it, and quite another for a Keeper to pick it up and run it from scratch. I'm on the lookout for a couple of people willing to give it a sho...

Re: MUP 095 - Campus Crier-Palooza!

Just to throw a boring librarian hat into the ring - you guys are still archiving episodes at Archive.org, right? Because they'll still be on there no matter what happens at Libsyn, which is always reassuring.

Re: MUP 093 - Elbow Deep in Chickens & the Art of PvP Persua

Lots of fun here. The PVP thing is a regular question and people seem to come up with all sorts of different answers. I think it really does depend on playstyle. Some groups are happy with social combat and PVP rolls. I feel inclined to say, maybe people who enjoy to the more "loss of control" end o...

Re: Indexing MUP

Some more listening finally happened. Slow, I know. It's been a weird couple of months. I was speaking Japanese 10 hours a day for a few weeks and now I'm kind of snowed under with excessive real life. How's a guy supposed to write scenarios? I can't work under these conditions! Episode 93 shadows o...

Re: Indexing MUP

And Episode 77, because I'm off sick today: music, collectibles, eibon, the thing at the threshold, rulesets, cthulhu dark, tremulus, trail of cthulhu, vampires, terrors from beyond, coming full circle, ultraviolet, janitor john, website, keeping, design, improvising, planning, convention play, anal...
